A recent study by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) found that proper HVAC maintenance and cleaning procedures could save businesses an average of 11% in energy savings.
Indoor air pollutants require an HVAC system to work harder to heat and cool a facility. Pollutants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated an average of 5 to 7 times per day. Over time, this causes a build-up of pollutants in the duct work. Removing the build-up allows the HVAC system to work more efficiently.
In addition to energy savings, air duct cleaning provides a healthier environment for allergy sufferers and those with respiratory illnesses. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies have found that indoor air may be two to five times—and occasionally more than 100 times—more polluted than outdoor air. Considering that the average American spends 90% of their time indoors, improving indoor air quality is vital. Indoor air pollutants can cause immediate and long-term health problems. One way to improve your home’s indoor air quality is to have its air ducts cleaned.
